Nexnix creatively used Screen Goo at the recent NEC Showcase 2013 which was held at the Tobacco Docks in London. In its fifth year, the NEC Showcase has grown larger every year, with this year’s show playing host to more than 1000 visitors!
“NEC had asked Nexnix to create a funky “Cool Room” in the retail zone of the show, so we decided on doing a projection based touch-screen DJ Deck stage solution as well as DMX lighting and smoke control” said Russell King of Nexnix.
“The DJ Table uses an NEC projector to project an image onto the touch foil/ transparent acrylic table from beneath allowing the DJ to control the software in a futuristic fashion. Carrying on with the DJ set theme in the room there were three NEC projectors which were projecting images and videos from an Edirol media server onto a stack of cardboard boxes (!!!) painted with High Contrast Screen Goo at either side of the DJ as well as a suspended piece of clear acrylic that had been sprayed with Screen Goo Rear Projection coating. All together this made for a very low cost but effective set!”
“The screens, either side, were made from 40 cardboard boxes with one side painted with Screen Goo High Contrast” adds Russell. “No bracketry (sic) or technical support or health and safety protocols were required for this video wall – just use of a tape gun! Boxes were flat packed after use!”
“Optical purity with the bezel less cardboard boxes led some to believe that NEC had released a Christie style tile – tres (sic) funny!” concluded Russell.
